Why You No Longer Need an IT Department: How to Spend Less, Boost Production and Still Get the Services You Need

There are 30.2 million small businesses in the United States. Many of these businesses rely on managed IT services instead of an IT team.

If you have a business and you’re looking for alternatives to an in-house team, there are solutions. You can save money and boost productivity with service plans that fit your business needs.

Learn about the benefits of managed services and find out how to get IT support without an IT department.

How SaaS and Cloud Solutions Empower Your Business

Businesses are eliminating the need for an IT team by using subscription software services. These customized plans fit individual needs, saving you money and boosting productivity.

Saas (Software as a Service) and Cloud services are changing the way business needs are met. Companies can now pick and choose which pay-as-you-go plans work for them.

Subscription plans have a variety of pricing and data storage plans. This means it’s easier than ever to pick what works for you.

The Advantages of IT Services vs an IT Department

Even without an IT department, you can still take advantage of IT services. In fact, there are more options now than ever before when it comes to having an offsite IT department.

Instead of having a full time IT department in the office, managed services provide greater security and reliable, round-the-clock support.

What are some of the benefits of using managed IT services?

Faster Response Rates

Slow Wi-Fi, glitches, and network crashes cause severe problems and costly downtime for your business.

With managed IT services, you can reach your IT team as soon as you realize there is an issue. That means no more waiting for meetings to end or for an in-house IT tech to arrive at the office.

Fewer Delays

Because you have access to a support team 24/7, you have fewer delays getting your problems resolved. Your IT services plan is designed with your specific needs in mind.

Need to access a blocked website or service? With on-call IT support, there is less time wasted in granting privileges.

Saves You Money

Your website can go down at any moment, meaning you need a team ready to handle emergencies at all hours.

You can spend less and have peace of mind with an IT services plan. Even if you only use remote services as a backup for after hours, you can relax knowing your business is secure.

Frequent Security Updates

Did you know that roughly half of all cyber attacks target small businesses?

Your customers rely on you to keep their data safe, but waiting for an IT tech to install updates on every computer is ineffective.

Prevent data breaches with frequent status updates and security upgrades to stay one step ahead of hackers.
